  • Insect to a formFORM PROJECT

    In this form exploration project i built paper models and worked with clay to help me understand the form better to achieve an end result which could still be related to the insect it was inspired from.

    December 2010

    Duration : 6 weeks

    Individual Project

    The brief of thisproject was to take inspiration from an insect in nature and explore its form to realise a final result which could be anything ranging from a sculpture to a building, form of transportation or a product. my Inspiration was the Rhino Beetle.

    November 2011

    Duration : 3 weeks

    Individual Project

    This Projects explores the possibility of a radically new concept for automotive interiors which offers the customer more possibilities and increases the average ownership cycle of cars by making them more experimentable for the current DIY generation of consumers who are more hands on with their technology

  • SCENARIO

    Varying lifestyles of people calls for different interior designs. That should not lead to ownership of multiple vehicles catering to these varying needs

    With more and more inventions coming up in garages. The new Generation is more than capa-ble of making things the way they want it.People tend to buy new cars to satisfy their changing needs and to get rid of boring tangible interiors. This also leads to huge amounts of waste and an unsustainable scenario.

    People dont buy new homes as often as they buy cars. When they get bored they renovate them. In the future with increased environmental policies buying a car will become more and more

    The new generation want to build things the way they want them

    Like a lego set the automotive interior will give the consumer numerous possibilities to experiment

  • Shadows always create an emotional effect. Shadows terns trigger emotions and makes us feel more relaxed or active depending on the pattern of the shadows. what if the occupant could actually select what pattern of shadows he or she wants to have in their space. A whole interior which is config-urable leads to lot of possibili-ties making the automobile ever new as it changes

    The interior is a shell made of a material. may it be ultra durable poly carbonate or something more green which is completely recyclable. The shell has numerous fixing points where the occupant can fix standard anything with standard fixing points. Different options are available through sellers like storage options, custom sun roofs, electronic fitments and the like

  • Different patterns for the roof. you create your own shad-ows by creating a pattern and then sending it to the seller who laser cuts it

  • The construction is like flexible wrapping on a clear shell. The shell has attachmet points where the attachments can be fixed. The attachments facilitate data and energy transfer.

    At this stage of the project I explored different ideas generated through the previous idea map through sketches

    Different laptops have different hot and cool areas which is not met through localised cooling fans in coolling pads. So I envisaged a mesh on which the fans could be located anywhere through detachable fasteners.

    I also looked at user ergonomics. The current laptop cooling pads on the market become uncomfortable to use for long hours. I explored better ergonomic solutions

  • Building a working prototype was quite essential for this project as it gave a better insight into the ergonomic issues

    After making the prottype i tested the airflow volume from the edges of the of the cooling pad after placing a laptop on it to quantify its effectiveness

    The final prototype was quite ergonomic to use due to the hand support and the variable tilt.

    The brand i chose was lamborghini as i have been fond of their cars since i was a kid. this excercise was quite challenging and rewarding at the same time as i found out that to identify the design language of a brand and using it to design products is quite tough.

    The aim of this project was to design four different designer knives for a brand which will represent the brand identity and the design language. this was my first excercise at trying to identify a distictive design language that distingusishes one brand from another.

    PROJECT BACKGROUND

    Target Audience

  • A city that is one of the fastest growing in the world and by current conditins the least prepared for it. People doing white collar jobs move everyday from the suburban Mumbai to the city\s core business districts in large numbers. The public transportation systems are over crowded. In 2046 there is a limit to the the size of the vehicles allowed inside central mumbai. The citys roads are a form of grid where vehicles are completely automated and you can just select your route from the GPS. The vehicles runs on invisible rails on the roads which restrict the track size of the vehicle.

  • INSPIRATION FROM LOTUS - INDIAS NATIONAL FLOWER An interesting aspect of lotus is that it blooms everday in the morning spreading out all its petals to collect sunlight and then closes itself at sunset and goes back into the water becoming ccompact again.

    The concept for my car is based on solar energy powered roads. The car has no engine of its own. To avoid the losses while passing through the atmosphere solar energy is instead collected outside the atmosphere and transmitted to energy stations on earth which power all roads. This makes solar energy far more efficient and reliable as there is no day and night outside the atmosphere or no clouds and fog which prevent sunlight from reaching the solar panels. The roads are powered and work on the principle of magnetism where transmitting electrical energy as well as propelling objects on its surface which are coupled magnetically to it.

    The approach was ideate many handle shapes and then move onto sketch models in foam and then test them on actual users in the target age group. I experimented a lot with different angles and different width of the triggers.

    A forward leaning handle was quite comfortable for the users rather than straight or backward leaning handles. It was observed with different users that they rarely use more than 3 fingers to actuate the trigger and would possibly like to support the weight of the sprayer with their fingers too. The handle has a lower support surface to be supported by a finger.

    Twisting the lower grip creates an airtight vaccum which enables fixing it to vertical or horizontal surfaces

    Twisting tthe top grip sets the timer and further twisting charges the timers batteries

    The top display of the timer can be popped out at the flick of a switch as an carry around timer.

    The timer also has additional Lithium ion batteries stored in the body which can be charged in case the user chooses not to wind the timer

    The bottom surface of the timer has a silicone suction cup which creates a vaccum lock upon twisting the body of the timer and the lock can be released upon re twisting in the opposite sense. this lock enables sticking to walls and surfaces

  • A fun project with schoolmates to design a transportation solution for a race without using wheels. The concept was based on lateral weight transfer initiated by the rider which caused the product to tilt from side to side due to a curved bottom shaped like a boats hull. The rider could then slide one of the sides and move forward. This project was done under the guidance of Ben Hopson
